Xpax, the prepaid brand under Celcom today has introduced its new “Internet of Xpax” plan, which offers free calls, internet and games on a daily basis. On top of that, its normal voice calls rates are among the lowest from as low as 33 sen for 10 minutes while texting is charged at a block of 20 sen for 5 SMS
The freebies included within the plan are:
FREE Internet – FREE 10 minutes of Internet session up to 3 sessions daily.
FREE Games – FREE 10 games via *118#
FREE Calls – FREE first 10 seconds for all domestic calls within the same network
To activate the free internet, you would need to dial *118# and select “FREE Internet & Games” or you can active by sending IOXNET to 28882. You can activate a maximum of 3 sessions in a day and any subsequent use would be charged at 50sen/50kb, which is equivalent to a very pricey RM10 per MB. For the free games, the available game titles were not shared but you are entitled to get 10 of them daily by dialling *118# and select “Free Internet & Game”.
Celcom Prepaid – Xpax has revised its plan with more affordable rates in conjunction with its Kolony social network launch. Now they are offering calls as low as 28 sen per 10 minutes for calls within Celcom or 28 sen per 5 minutes for other networks. SMS rates too have gone down at 1 sen per SMS for same network and 5 sen per SMS for others.
This is good for those who make lots of long calls as you get to talk long for cheap. However looking at the comparison with their old Xpax plans, they have dropped the 15pax which offers even lower rates per minute for 15 friends and family.

Celcom Xpax is one of Malaysia’s most attractive prepaid Blackberry service at the moment. At only RM1/day, you get unlimited BBM under its Blackberry Social package. There’s a higher RM2.50/day This has been a long dominance for Xpax until recently DiGi and Maxis joined in and offered daily packages of RM2 and RM2.50 per day respectively.
Xpax obviously trying to hold their ground has
reduced introduced a new barebone Blackberry daily subscription at 50 sen/day. We got a twitpic taken by TianChad shown above on the announcement.
The other existing daily prepaid plans for BlackBerry are still maintained, giving a total of 3 daily package as below:
So basically the new BBM with Xpax is the stripped down version of the RM1/day BlackBerry social that is limited to purely Blackberry messenger service. This new plan is a better deal if all you do is BBM without the need of Facebook, Twitter and other popular IM. For social freaks, you probably stick to the same RM1/day BlackBerry Social plan.
More details on the Xpax Blackberry site.
Its going to be interesting to see what DiGi and Maxis will come up with to counter this.
Just one minor request to Celcom PR. Please remember to include SoyaCincau.com in your distribution list. Thank you.
